A special video snacking treat for you today as we visit Alice Water's iconic restaurant CHEZ PANISSE in Berkeley, California.
An interview with Alice Waters who we credit as one of the first chefs and entrepreneurs to embrace local sustainable agriculture and cooking with "in-season" fresh ingredients.

Hot Spring water is added (never boiling so as to retain the nutrients and optimum flavor) and whisked for few seconds. The purpose of the bamboo whisk is to remove any lumps remaining in the liquid and any on the sides of the tea bowl. This is beautiful daily ritual.

Let's stop for lunch at one of my favorite cafes in Los Angeles, M Cafe with locations in Beverly Hills, Culver City and the Melrose District (near Hollywood). M Cafe offers a unique menu of macrobiotic dishes with no refined sugars, eggs, dairy, red meat or poultry. Macrobiotics stresses the importance of whole, natural foods eaten in season and as minimally processed as possible.
I love their two salad fresh combo duo of scarlet quinoa and sesame soba noodles. They also serve an amazing kale-lemonade!
